@Emby The Lighthouse Inn, or something like that. I wrote about my trip here: http://www.postcardsandpaperbacks.com/2012/01/postcard-from-key-west-part-two-trip.html

The only downside was that we went in January so the ocean water was pretty chilly. I bet April is the perfect time to go!

@Emby what hotel? I looooove key west. I went last year with the bf and we stayed across the street from the Hemingway house. It was awesome. Go on a sunset cruise! Just don't get accidentally wasted like I did. Sailors + open bar do not mix.

@DIES IMMORTALES!!! how was he going to decimate your allergies? Just curious. Mine have been killing me this past year...even during the winter! I have to take a decongestant every friggin day, plus eye drops, and a nasal spray.

I have way too many papers to grade this weekend....this semester I'm teaching 3 sections of Eng 102 and it's slowly destroying my brain. I barely have time to do my own writing, though I did manage to write a blog post for the first time in a month (Treacle tarts from Alice In Wonderland! http://www.postcardsandpaperbacks.com/2013/03/literary-eats-treacle-tarts-from-alices.html)

Anyone have advice for balancing work with creative pursuits?
